WASHINGTON, DC -- The Women’s March is proud to announce the 2019 Women’s March Artist Table, a group of over 20 artists and performers who will serve as cultural ambassadors for the 2019 Women's March on Washington.

“Artists help us imagine the unimaginable. The Women’s March is so proud to be joined by so many artists whose commitment to justice and dedication to the movement inspire us,” said Carmen Perez-Jordan, Board Member of Women’s March. “We strongly believe that the arts – whether visual or performing – play an important role in movements for social change. The use of artistry is vital to our movements. Without art we are not able to tell our stories, to convey our truth and power.”

The 2019 Women’s March on Washington will be held on January 19. Over 200 sister marches are taking place around the country, with dozens more taking place around the globe.

The 2019 Women’s March will be a mass mobilization to demand concrete policy changes, grounded in the soon-to-be-released Women’s Policy Agenda. More than 70 movement leaders and policy experts, convened by Women’s March, are hard at work crafting a visionary new federal policy platform for the women’s movement, known as the Women’s Agenda, that will be unveiled the week of the January march.
